The city of Chicago is trying to trim its budget when it comes to trimming its Christmas tree.
Last year, the city put up a 90-foot-high tree that was actually made up of 113 smaller trees.
This year, the Office of Special Events says Chicago has downsized its plans. The tree that will go up in Daley Plaza will be a single tree, and the 56-foot blue spruce was donated by a Palos Heights family.
